Quiltville Custom Quilting

Scrappy Trips Around The World
Class Supply List

The objective in this workshop is for students to learn the basics, and the fun and freedom of scrap piecing! When made using planned chains of color that form radiating diamonds around each center square, this pattern is called "many trips around the world". But let's take the organized rounds of colors away, and free ourselves while letting "anything go".  We are just Scrappy Tripping!

Please print the pattern instructions found at http://quiltville.com/scrappytripspf.html and bring them to class with you. It is helpful if you take the time to read through them before class starts.

Basic Supplies:

Sewing machine in working order (including power cords and extention cords) Thread, scissors, seam ripper,pins and any other notions you usually sew with.
Rotory cutter, mat and ruler. A LONG ruler is also helpful. My favorite sizes are 6.5" X 12.5" and 6"X24"
We will also need ironing stations, and a large cutting table at proper height is helpful.

Fabric Pre-Cutting:

This class is “block” focused, meaning you can make as many blocks as you want to get the quilt to be the size you want it to be. A quilt center that is 4 blocks X 5 blocks will measure 48”X60” and will be a good lap size if borders are added. Each block is 12" finished, and information is given for what is needed for each individual block.

Because it is a one day class, bring enough to sew with, you can always add more later. The objective is to use what you have in your quilt stash and make a beautiful quilt!

For this size of lap quilt you will need 120 2-1/2"X18" strips in a good variety of lights, mediums and darks. 

In this quilt "ANYTHING" goes! Use it up, get it out of the scrap stash!

Optional Fabrics: Borders, Backing and Binding!

I look forward to scrappy fun with your guild for this workshop!
